I never said preserving detail. But you can retain the color and shape of a setting sun.

it all depends on weather condition .sometimes at sunrise and sunset it is possible to shoot sun and sun will not appear over blown .such weather
condition occur only few times a year .Those who live in coastal areas where there is high humidity must have noticed it. it is really not possible
to predict when it will happen . usually you can guess it right just 10 to 15 minutes before the sunset .

Do you know any techniques to get good shots when shooting into the sun? (in camera, lens or filter?

You can try a graduated neutral density filter (GND filter).

No--you're right. I was being somewhat silly and glib. It just reminded me of the seemingly relentless critique of other photos by many that seems to treat true whites or true blacks in a scene as somehow unacceptable. I happen to think that in this case, for this photo, exposing for the sun and keeping its shape would reduce the image to a nice orb shape surrounded by black--ie., all of the important contextual detail would be lost. Not to say that the photo works as is, though.

I feel like I saw an example photo that disappeared from the thread. It indeed had detail preserved in the sun with some actual context ! I stand corrected !

i think the first one may have worked a little bit better in a horizontal orientation, the bottom of the picture does not really do much for the shot
